Oberammergau Passion Play

The Oberammergau pilgrimage is already filled by word of mouth.  If you would like to be placed on the waiting list, please contact the Carmelite Spiritual Center at 630-969-4141.

Including Budapest, Vienna, and A Cruise of the Danube River. 

This once every ten-year Passion Play is awesome – we experienced it in 2000 & 2010 and I knew I’d return.  There are limited places, because the Passion Play tickets had to be purchased and guaranteed ahead of time.  The Danube River Cruise includes stops at Bratislava, Slovakia, Vienna, Durnstein, Linz, Passau, Regensburg, and Bavaria, which are delightful and historic. First come, first served.  $4,500 – $5,600 (double occupancy) depending on categories of suites desired on cruise ship.
